Review

Art supplements are reviewed by Dartmouth faculty. If you submit an art supplement, our faculty will consider your potential to deeply engage with the arts at Dartmouth—either through academic studies or extracurricular pursuits.

If admitted, your submission does not commit you to participate in the arts, though we hope you will. Conversely, a lack of submission will not count against you if, in the future, you decide to participate in the arts as part of your college experience.
